From the Doctor

I specialize in working with hematology and oncology patients and help them cope with both the physical and emotional issues related to their diagnosis and treatment of medical problems such as cancer. I serve as a full-time resource available to you and your family at the time of a cancer diagnosis, during treatment and upon completion of medical treatment.
